A pair of concerts will offer a tribute to David Bowie in New York City this week, and you'll be able to stream one of them. Due to "unprecedented interest," concert organizers are teaming up with Skype and Ammado so that Bowie fans around that world can watch live performances from Radio City Music Hall on April 1st. This is actually the second show, added after the response for the first event that's set for Thursday at Carnegie Hall. The Carnegie Hall date for "The Music of David Bowie," a tribute show that will raise money for music education, was announced just before the singer passed away in January. Both nights sold out immediately.

If you want to tune in this Friday at 8:00 PM ET, you'll be asked to make a donation or a minimum donation equivalent to $20 or £15 to one of the event's partner charities. Once you donate via the event's website, you'll be given a link to the stream. In return for your donation, you can watch scheduled acts like the Pixies, Blondie, the Flaming Lips, The Roots, Mumford & Sons, The Polyphonic Spree and several more.
